thing. 89 said yes in the united states senate. 257 said yes in the house of representatives. at the deadline. and they could only do it after the technical deadline of the fiscal cliff had passed. but before the practical deadline of the stock market opening this morning, and today the stock market that had remained calm throughout the fiscal cliff melodrama gave a standing ovation to the result. the dow closed up 308 points. the markets obviously didn't care that the deal was done at the last minute. in fact, the markets always correctly expected the deal to be done at the last minute. and the other thing, the other thing we have to get straight right now is did the president get a good deal? and i have this question for anyone who says the president and joe biden got a bad deal, they caved. as some of the on-line headlinesheadlines said caved to republicans on income tax rates. caved. and that question is this, when is the last time you successfully negotiated an income tax increase with republican senators and congressmen? i will save you some time with that answer right
is are we united in drying that up from the people i have talked to? the answer is yes. krystal ball, when you have lost the socialites, i believe the republicans have nothing left to lose. >> well, it -- >> what else is there? this is rock bottom? >> it looks pretty bleak. >> a hack, fundraiser. >> she had strong words there, well, i was looking back at the analysis "the washington post" did last summer regarding the republican party, and the sort of old republicans which i assume she is, fiscally conservative, typically northeastern, typically well off still make up about 22% of the party. so a decent chunk of the party. and what georgeette there shows, they make up a certain amount of the funding base which is why they have had a lock on the republican party. and the innovation for the growth of the tea party is their ability to have larger scale donor movements, smaller dollar to add up to a larger amount. and for a while, the georgeettes of the world in 2010 were willing to ride the wave, because sure we were electing crazy people but they were in other districts. now they see how the
blitzer begins right now. >> don, thanks very much. happening now, the united states senator talks about the traumatic day she tried to find a pulse by putting her finger into the bullet hole of a colleague who had just been shot. now she wants to ban 158 kinds of assault weapons. dispute all the iphones, the tablets, ipods and a whole lot more there are out there, perhaps in your hands right now, apple's day as a wall street darling potentially, potentially could be over. wait until you hear how the stock got clobbered today and why. >>> and football star manti te'o opens up about the hoax that fooled him and the rest of the country. it's the interview that so many people have been waiting for. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with a new effort to ban 158 specific assault-style weapons and prohibit other guns from using magazines containing more than ten rounds of ammunition. those are just two of the provisions of a bill put forward today by united states senator whose own hands were bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. da
and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being responsible on debt issues when this president has been in the white house since january the 20th, 2009, and he has yet to do anything significant on social security or medicare. he cut medicare, so he could start a new entitlement program. that's not making medicare more solvent. he hasn't done anything to curb the costs of medical expenses, which he said he was going to do. he did nothing. he struck back room deals with hospitals, big pharma, with special interests and now he's saying republicans are being reckless.
years and a federal prosecutor as united states attorney for four and a half years. the best laws on the books are dead letter unless enforced, so we need more resources. absolutely right. both at the state and federal level to enforce existing laws and if that executive action or order involves more resources or more vigorous enforcement of existing laws, improving that national database, the national enforcement criminal background system, all to the better. >> so, you're saying the executive order, that the president could do, could be you know, putting more people, more resources, more money into existing laws. he can do that via executive order? >> well, he may need an appropriation from congress for major amounts of money, but remember, we're not talking about huge amounts of funding. the national database appropriation last year was $5 million. that's million. not billion. $5 million, which is a drop in the bucket for the connecticut state budget, not to mention the national budget. but here's the main thing. i proposed a bill that would involve better enforcement of existi
at the same time profoundly wrong on some of the biggest national security threats confronting the united states today. he's a good man, but this is a wrong job for him because he's certainly outside of the national security mainstream. >> you're going to see my interview with senator cornyn during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour. that's our next hour. we'll get specific about why senator cornyn thinks hagel's the wrong man for the job. let's dig a little deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. why do you think -- i know you're speaking to a lot of folks, the president held firm, refused to be kowtowed, refused to give up on hagel? >> that's right, wolf, as you know, we've been reporting hagel was his top choice since sort of early/mid-december and i don't think that really wavered even in the face of all this criticism that has come out. first, the president obviously believes that he's qualified. he's a decorated war veteran. in the congress, he served on the foreign relations and intelligence committees. he's co-chair of the president's intelligence advisory board. i think th
running low on vaccine doses. >> gregg: and france is now saying that the united states is aiding effort to fight islamic extremists, what it may mean for our military. >> arthel: president obama chosen few, the cabinet nominees that will face congress. we have a fair and balanced debate. >> gregg: we begin this hour with the future of america's gun laws, now the focus of a red hot debate. joe biden is getting ready to make had his recommendations to president obama this tuesday on ways to curb gun violence. coming up about month after the school shootings in connecticut, speculation is growing on what he will propose and also the arguments on sunday political talk shows. peter doocy has more on the plan expected to be unveiled this week. is the nra changing their tune on gun control? >> reporter: no, they are not. david keen is still steamed that obama administration is putting emphasis on it. he doesn't think he is tag their concerns seriously. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically that they question that they would address what can we do to prevent these kinds of thing
. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists said. >> all say it again. the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> we do not negotiate with terrorists. we are obviously in consultations. lou: the problem with that statement is that this government has negotiated with terrorists. our government has been engaged in talks with the taliban and afghanistan since early 2009. the same group that has been a safe haven in the immediate aftermath of september 11th. documents found in the abbottabad compound the lion was killed proving a close working relationship between the two. the same group that is also responsible for a large portion of the 2200 american soldiers killed in afghanistan since 2001. not to mention the palestinian liberation organization the designation changed after we helped negotiate the deal. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton chose her words carefully, while suggesting that the algerian government could use a hand in the battle in that region. >> it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counter-terrorism cooperation going f
a strong claim to presidential authority in the united states constitution. perhaps above all else the presidential duty is to keep the government from going to pieces, to do so, the president may even have to choose the least troubling option from a menu of unconstitutional choices, and this may be precisely the kind of constitutional interpretation that our current president is considering. a week away from his second inauguration, president obama is facing a series of roadblocks to going about the business of governing, from replacing outgoing cabinet members, to the ability to issue new debt, and the issue between the oval office and capitol hill has been proven intractable and how can he keep the government from going to pieces. two legal scholars may have a solution for the president particularly when it comes to the debt standoff. writing for the columbia law review, the authors write that in the debt ceiling deal context and given the balance of the practical stand prudential considerations, the least constitutional choice would be for the president to continue to issue deb
into default. that amendment contained a section stating that the validity of the public and the united states shall not be questioned. at best interpret those words to be authorization for the president to act on his own is to say the least eight tortured reasoning. and as a matter of law, the federal borrowing limit is set by congressional approval. the white house, not as adventurous as the democrats in congress to send that letter. the white house unwilling to take on more than one constitutional amendment and challenge at a time. white house spokesman jay carney today. >> the proposition on the 14th amendment has not changed. let's be clear. congress has the responsibility and the sole authority to raise the debt ceiling. congress must do its job. lou: the administration does appear willing to go around congress to enact at least some gun-control measures. we will be debating tonight the administration's efforts to broaden and control in this country, talking with former birdie campaign president richard a. bourne in constitutional law professor david. vice-president joe biden today met w
don't think there's been retaliation. but in the shortest way possible, the united states has said it will consider the extent of the damage done regardless of how it's done. whether it's done by a missile or a cyberattack. and we'll retaliate appropriately depending upon who did it and what they did, not how they did it. with regard to the weapons systems, the f-35 that you mentioned, vast amounts of the code for the f-35 systems were stolen before the plane ever flew. so, stolen by friendly asian government. [laughter] you may well think that in the future, if there were a war, if , weapons systems might roll out onto the battlefield and not work. >> thank you very much. we're out of time. thank you very much. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> point we've seen over the years is not just economics, it's the discomfort that investigative reporting often causes in a news room. because it's troublesome. it's that more than the economics. if you're going to ruffle the feathers of somebody powerful, that
romney would have been the president of the united states. this is fundamentally changing the rules. this would be like saying, we want the nfl to change the rules, a quarterback can no longer run in the offense anymore. >> democrats have brought this up before, but in this day and age, with twitter, and with everything such in focus, do you think republicans can really push this through, or will the public outcry be so much to say, look, president obama won by hundreds of thousands of votes in virginia. why could you do this? >> luke, that remains the to be seen. "the washington post" is reporting that virginia's senate will be acting on this legislation as early as next week. we'll look to see. reince priebus, the rnc chairman, who's supposed to be re-elected as rnc chairman was interviewed a few weeks ago where he said, look, i think some of the states that are proposing this is a pretty good idea, although he says that the rnc doesn't have the final word on this, it will be interesting to see what other republican leaders have to say. because at the end of the day, this is looki
united states from one house of the congress and that is something that i think the newcomen enthusiastic, young, committed members of his congress do not understand. they only control one house of congress. you can stop them blocked, which is, i think something that you're conservative you'd want to do to prevent some of the more expansive liberal legislation from happening. the problem they have now with the debt ceiling is this is again playing roulette. what they have to do is they have to have a caucus united on a simple demand. whatever it is, $1 in spending cuts for every $1 in debt increases, a balanced budget amendment, but something. they also made a tactical throw back. if they do not, they will get rolled. advice is' thoughtful, but when asked if they would expect -- accept $10 for $1, everyone said it was unacceptable. we are in a position where we'd like to take tough positions but we do not like to make tough calls. >> i think we will see something inherently different. i think the president is serious when he says he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling. he should not.
as an opportunity for leverage to get those spending cuts that they didn't just get. the president of the united states says he's not going to play ball on that. he may unilaterally raise the debt and may lower the debt and there are a few options on the table so we'll have to see how that plays out. >> do you think he might invoke the constitution to prevent congress from holding him hostage? >> we have to see. the white house pretty much shut that down in december and november when there were discussions of possibly doing that especially when liberal democrats were suggesting he should do it and he had proposed and it was quickly shut down the possibility of being able to do this in the future without congressional approval and that was shut down not only by republicans, but also democrats who said how dare he think about it. i think it would be a radical move and only because there was some serious gridlock. >> jonathan, let's turn our focus now to the speaker. we covered speaker boehner. this is what the former speaker of the house had to say about him. let's take a listen on the other side.
't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. campbell's has 24 new soups that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. p>>> president obama will nominate chief of staff jack loo for secretary as soon as tomorrow. he would replace timothy geitner and he is the former director and if confirmed by the senate, it would be president obama's appointment and major battles ahead over the debt limit and reducing the deficit. meantime, new talk from the obama administration that the u.s. could decide to pull all remaining troops out of afghanistan by the end of next year. the deputy natio
's questioning the full phase and credit of the united states of america and putting us over that cliff. now vice president biden told us oh, they'll never do that. the wall street journal will wrote an editorial that they will run scared. they're radical. a number of them have said if we have to destroy the credit of the country in order to get what we want which is down-sized libertarian type of a country we'll do it. >> cenk: you may be thinking cenk, congressman defazio you may be right about tax cuts. maybe. we have some tax increases, but over all as you can see from all the fact that we gave you the rich god enormous tax cuts, right? still. but wait a minute. aren't there parts of the deal that are good for the middle class? there are improved child tax credit. earned income tax credit extended for five years. notice those are not permanent. they're only for five years. no cuts to snap. wow, are they not merciful, and unemployment benefits was extended for one year. tax cuts permanent, unemployment extended for one year. let me tell you what a load of crap that is. oh wow unemployment bene
women have been assigned and attached to units and even commanders had no idea that women would be able to fulfill, and women served beyond anyone's expectation, really accomplished amazing feets, silver stars, bronze stars with combat devices. so they proved everybody wrong. >> jennifer: well there still are a few. let's take a listen quickly to representative tom cotton. he is a newly elected member of congress and a military veteran. here is what he says. >> to have women serving in infantry though could impair the mission essential task of those units, and that has been proven in study after study just from a matter of -- it's nature. upper body strength and physical movements and speed endurance and so forth. >> jennifer: is it just about strength or it is something els. >> the congressman's comments were really out of line and not based on facts. there are women who could do these tasks, because they are being recruited right now is another question, and we don't have our best and brightest necessarily joining the military, because today men are random
summer, maybe. the developments across north africa have huge implications for the united states. to give you one example -- any time you had areas where there is no rule of law and where there is no government, you have a place where al qaeda or al qaeda type affiliate's can take root. as we have those places, they feed things -- they see things. they see plots, they contemplate plot against the united states. just because they have not had a major terrorist attack in the homeland in the last few years does not mean that we can seal ourselves off from the rest of such an attack. we live in a world where what happened in north africa and country that people may not have even heard of before really can have a direct impact, whether you live in washington, d.c., los angeles or any place in between. >> we also have homegrown terrorists and so called lone wolves. when we are dealing with american citizens inside our country, there is a different rate that applies. our constitution and our fourth amendment. aseptic that where that line is between freedom of expression, protected by our first a
that looked like the united states of america and there will be 20 women as you point out among the 100 senators, there will a lot more women and minorities, hispanics and african-americans in the house of representatives. when all is said and done, there are democrats and republicans, and there is a democratic majority in the senate and there's a republican majority maintained in the house of representativess. the president has to deal with those facts of life. in the senate as you know and as our viewers know, on really important issues even though there's 55 democrats, 53 democrats, two independents who will caucus with the democrats, 55-45, even though there will be a democratic majority, you still need 60 to get important stuff done so the republicans will have a little check on that. the house of representatives, i think, the final number is 233 republicans, 200 democrats, two vacancies right now. the republicans still have an impressive majority in the house of representatives. as diversity is important, suzanne, the political parties are pretty important as well. the president i
in uniform and he's been in battle, and he understands war is a last resort and the united states will put all options on the table and will become involved militarily when it needs to become involved, but we have to understand what the implications of that are, and he understands that personally. and i think that he represents the vast majority of military leaders in that regard. >> you know, david, one follow on this. in an interview in march of this year, chuck hagel talking about a war, he said they escalate, they always do and they always will. i don't think we're necessarily locked into two options. in a sense it was a very wise thing to say. sometimes we create false choices, war or no war. is he being nuanced and thoughtful? >> we all want to avoid war in iran. everybody wants to avoid that. it is really a bad option. but to what doug just said, secretaries of defense do not merely execute orders from the president. they are conduits -- they advise the president, and they shape the options that are available to the president. some information reached the president, other informatio
united. now, maybe your divisions to vote, but all of us are committed to getting this done. i want to thank the chairman of the rules committee, mr. sessions, for the great job they've done in bringing it here, with a fair rule, and allowing for an up and down vote. >> one more thing that's significant, supporters of the sandy bill beat back an amendment from mulvaney which would have offset a large portion of the aid with across the board cuts from other spending. >> this amendment is not about day. this amendment is not about offering a poisoned pill to the underlaying bill. we've mismanaged our own finances to the point where we are now no longer capable of taking care of our own. >> despite those pleas, the mulvaney amendment went down big. 162 to 258 with 71 republicans voting against it. the fiscal cliff and sandy relief votes do provide a template for how, by the way, the debt ceiling might ultimately get raised. on the tax deal, house republican leaders had political cover from senate republicans. on sandy, chris christie provided the political cover, leaving house leaders,
, of what is the overall objective of the united states presence in afghanistan in the years ahead, whether or not the afghan military is capable of achieving those objectives. and i think because it's unclear and it has remained uncleared for so many years, the fundamental answer to that remains very ambiguous. >> so the accelerated withdrawal that ber talking about, does this mean that things are better on the ground in afghanistan, it's at a time when we can pull out our troops without leaving them decimated, or is this all about the u.s. just wants to get out? >> well, i think there's no doubt there's war fatigue in the united states. there's no doubt this war has dragged out from the eyes of many people for far too long, has cost far too many lives -- >> 11 years. >> 11 years. more than 2,000 soldiers killed. billions of dollars spent. and the question is is the united states particularly safer, is afghanistan safer. the short answer to that is yes, to some extent there are. but has the quality of life for afghan people gotten better? and many people make the argument it hasn't. even p
because the average single person over 65 has median income of about $18,000. over half of the units, a 65- years old and older, are central as opposed to couples. the couple's median income is only $44,000 so you cannot expect to get huge amounts of money by shifting costs on to them. >> i will give the audience a chance to ask a few questions. there will be microphones taken around and i would like you to wait until you get a microphone and please introduce yourself and make it a question and not a speech. right back here -- >> i am and dick miller -- what does anybody up there think about [inaudible] i understand the labels and expectations of having people in both houses of congress trying to work across the aisles, people in more of the middle. >> there are many bipartisan groups the deployed around. everyone on this panel has participated in some of them. do you see any opportunities at all coming from the stacse? >> ultimately, it is the only way out what we see in the congress is continued polarization and erosion of the blue dog democrats, the moderate democrats and we see, unfort
of the united states. there's a subsidy for rum made in puerto rico, a tax break if you train a mine rescue worker, and a tax credit for every kilowatt of electricity produced by the wind. all told, a fiscal cliff law designed to reduce the deficit added $74 billion in spending through changes in the tax law. do you consider this pork? >> oh, absolutely. this was filled with pork. >> reporter: republican congressman darrell issa, who voted no on the bill, says many house members felt blindsided by tax breaks that were never publicly debated. >> and it's pork particularly because they couldn't get these through any other way except by throwing them into a bill like this. >> reporter: but supporters of the tax provision say they will create jobs. dan houser of the international speedway corporation, the owner of nascar, says faster tax write-offs will lead to more investment in tracks and in stadiums. >> it's not a tax break. what it's doing is, it's creating shovel-ready capital investment in communities that desperately need jobs. >> reporter: for many in congress, though, who had sworn off
and they just isolate the united states. joining me now, retired army colonel jack jacobs and also politics reporter for "roll call." colonel, i'll start with you in this discussion. many people talked about the dynamic of the confirmation hearing and you have john mccain who once praised chuck hagel, even saying that he could be secretary of state. now going after this war hero, two war heroes, if you will, together and what will likely not be a glorious moment but to give us all pause. what do you make of the dynamic here? much of the praise of john mccain and the credibility is the fact he served and same is said for chuck hagel? >> there's a lot of things at work here. one of them is the senate's opportunity to assert itself in an environment of which the president's won re-election and they don't want him to do anything he wants. they're also very muched concerned generally about what hagel probably intends to do and that is to continue panetta's effort to streamline the pentagon and make budget cuts. those who are in favor of a strong defense are against that and therefore against hag
